Toshiba Europe has premiered the new STOR.E TV PRO. The multimedia console turns plain TVs into smart TVs connected to the Web. Featuring full browsing capabilities and a video conferencing mode, it brings the online world to any TV screen in the house.
“The vast majority of TVs in the home do not provide web access,” said Marco Perino, General Manager, Digital Products Division, Toshiba Europe GmbH. “We’ve been looking for a plug-and-play approach to connect these stand-alone‚ TVs to the web and designed the multimedia console STOR.E TV PRO.” According to Display Search’s analysts, nearly 75 per cent of all flat panel TVs shipped in 2011 are expected not to have any form of internet connectivity .
STOR.E TV PRO will be available in the fourth quarter 2011 in Europe.
